Kitten Ears



Who could resist knitting some Kitten Ears for their granddaughter?



This is a vintage (1950s?) pattern - Paragon brand (from New Zealand) and they call this a "Bunny Bonnet" - well it doesn't look like much laid flat but when put on a round head the points become ears - not quite large enough for a bunny really, more like a kitten or possum. I did adapt very slightly by making a button-up, under-chin strap instead of ribbon ties. My daughter is phobic about long ribbons near baby necks - I quite see her point! and it is amazing - nearly every knitting pattern for babies (new and vintage) features ribbon ties.

The yarn was left over from teh outfit I made for the 4th "Knitting for Blythe" swap on Ravelry ... (I must post you some photos) anyways, it is a self-patterning sock yarn called "Jigsaw".
